creek and oakland. this particular location is a historic 1907 building, beautiful building, right on the edge of union square about a half a block from bart. and about a half a block from market and the new show place that is going in at market and mason. we are opening basically what we hope will be a world class beer cafe with a type 42 license and there will be 40 rotating of the world's finest beer and 500 labels of the world's finest beers from 20 countries. it will have three zones of temperatures to make sure that each of these beers is given to the customer at the exact perfect temperature to enhance the flavor. this project will create between 25 and 30 jobs. the building itself was the old polos hof brow since 1907 was a san francisco institution. that particular place closed almost 20 years ago and there was a period for about two or three years where there was a nightclub in that particular location, which failed. but, it has been basically a 75-foot black hole on mason street and this this owner is not -- he is in for the long haul. he is a partner in the building. they

interesting to note. one, the oakland coliseum refinancing when the raiders moved back into los angeles was one of the most complicated bond financing deals in northern california, and i was involved both on the county of alameda side and the city of oakland side because i was the partner in charge of both the those audits at the time. also when the city and county of san francisco had a lawsuit regarding the 1997 bond funds of the school district, the city attorney's office hired me as a expert witness in helping to compile some of the information needed to go to court. the mission of my cpa firm is to help government improve their internal administrative operationses. so, my passion for community service aligns directly with my, with my profession as well. it's what i know and what i love. the prior community service that i have that i think would be helpful in this role is that i served as an elected school board member in new haven unified school district for two terms including serving as the president. i was the elected auditor at the city of alameda. i served on the citizens over

disfavor in 1991 in the oakland fire. that particular tragedy was that people tried to leave. 11 people died including 6 going in their cars trying to get out. this particular assess road is unsafe and it should be denied. i appeal to our discretion. thank you >> thank you. >> good morning members of the commission i'm stephanie. i live in the corresponding mount apartment. i'd like to speak to the potential danger of the instability of the hillside on which this project is to go built. several years ago there was a land side on court reporting land street. that's now covered over by concrete that was placed through in order to shore up the hillside. the fifth avenue building was undermined by that landslide. it was very scary to all of us and the hillside on where this project is to be built is very steep. as one of the gentlemen before me mentioned that building was left off of the illustration of the project that was to be built and i also have to ask why that building was left off the project. i didn't intend to speak this afternoon so pardon me i'm not a speaker. this project is no

insurance. it has a different office in the city. it has an office in oakland. the entity that mr. williams mentioned that is in irvine has a similar name but it is not the tenant in the lease but it is not affiliated with mr. chin and i ask him to show otherwise. we have a letter from the principal indicating that he is not running his insurance agency, he is running a financial service agency. >> as you probably know insurance companies have rated other entity and principals in them have licensing in financial service and investments. will insurance be offered here? yes, as one of many, many vehicles, the kind of insurance that will be offered is a financial asset based insurance not your typical life insurance. this is a financial service company. i doubt that was brought to the attention of supervisor chu's office. and we are going to show in the next few minutes, why the financial services company does not need a conditional use permit and it is based on the fact that a financial service's company unlike a business and professional services, does not require conditional use f

things. two i feel really good about. one, i'm on the board at oakland military, one of governor brown's charter schools he started in oakland. i'm the secretary treasurer of the board. we transform lives. we have about 700 kids. almost none of their parents have gone to college, almost all the kids do, and almost all the kids graduate in four years. so, it's wonderful, wonderful experience. the other thing i've done here, i was foreman of the civil grand jury back in 2001-2002, worked closely with ed harrington and the auditors and the city attorney. we did two investigations which i was directly involved in on the subject of purchasing, how i was kind of curious how san francisco buys stuff and then i've done a bunch of that. after leaving the grand jury, we had a chapter, local chapter of the california grand jurors association. i was president of that for three years. we do recruiting, interviews and training for new people on the civil grand jury. one of the people on that grand jury -- this was 2002, was in the first cycle of the people on this committee, arlene singer. she

people. (applause) >> our young people can't afford to live in this city. so, they move to oakland, they move to wherever they have to move to be able to afford housing. our young people are living two to 10 to an apartment. it is unconscionable. and this is not just low-income kids. i'm talking about kids that have gotten out of college and have started their lives and can't afford to live in san francisco. this is not something that we want to be known for. so, the project that we're doing at booker t. is a pilot project. it is a project designed to help emancipate and foster youth, those that are just coming out of foster care. we will be providing 24 units of housing for them. but we will also be providing affordable housing for other people that need housing. when you say that you're going to pay a thousand dollars a month for a one-room -- for a one-room studio, anyplace else in this country, that's a lot of money. not here. my niece live in an apartment with three other young women and they pay a thousand dollars a month each. * to live in that apartment. so, i think as we m

was people were fleeing san francisco to live in oakland, berkeley in resident parks because they didn't want to be so dense and there was no plays for it to be built and san francisco developed like st. france, lakeside village and later forest hill and we speak about forest hills it provided a place for lack of a better term people in what would be upper-middle class could live in an area that wasn't so dense. now we're building almost no single-family homes in san francisco. and what is happening is people with families what are looking particularly for a new home are forced out of san francisco. if they buy an older home there's in bad shape. or they're forced into homes where the neighborhoods are used for other things other than housing and it's not a pleasant place. i'd like love to see this move forward as proposed by the neighbors with fewer sites. i think we heard from an expert in housing prices and i think her comments were adequate for this to immunes and not to pencil out to cover the costs you've got to have a number of homes. you're not going to sell those homes mo

oakland just approved the provisions on college avenue and actually granted them a variance which was an unusual step. but the point is that a lot of municipalities are not wanting to get in the way of this movement and to have this off-sale ability is a key thing for their business to thrive, like a lot of the other examples that have already been mentioned. i strongly support their application. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> i am soma tenatn, fourth generation san franciscoan and i am opening up a restaurant in april on (inaudible). i think that these guys are part of the help for a solution to revitalization. the area right now, i can't help but think of amsterdam from the wire and i was walking down the street this morning and i was talking to the guys at swan oyster depot telling them that i was going to a hearing where is the location. and they were like it seems like the city would rather have homeless people over there that are not paying taxes instead of working class people who are paying taxes and thirsty. >> you are like having great department buildings over there and

this. lausd is doing this, oakland unified is doing this. so there's a lot of models we can look to, but we need to make sure that we model ours on theirs because you don't wanna have two very large, but completely unaligned local hire programs. so i'm glad we put that amendment in there, but again, we're looking at this very closely in terms of not just whether it's legal, which obviously it's a starting point, but anything that needs to be done needs to be done in partnership with our labor partners and our community partners so we're looking forward to again the rest of process which, as i said, is just beginning. >> i believe council has a suggestion on commissioner mendoza's request. >> i would just create another bullet and it would include the following language. include a robust an comprehensive internship program slash pathway for district students within the project labor agreement. i'll read it one more time. include a robust and comprehensive internship program slash pathway for district students within the project labor agreement. >> thank you council. >> were you movin

consents to oakland and san jose and when paf rete and streisand and this is the problem and if we had an arena decent for presentation san francisco would be the first site but that doesn't mean this has to be the only site in san francisco but it's the best site because it satisfies so many things being so close to accessibility from cal train, from bart, from muni, from a lot of different public transportation and also very walkable. it also impresses me after giant games the number of people on the street walking up to market street or into the heart of san francisco and everyone had horror stories about how bad it would be and i don't think i ever had a problem coming or going to a giant games whether i walked or drive or public transportation. i usually don't drive and if i do i park a wayings away and i think this makes sense. somebody brought up the question about maritime uses and as was pointed out in the presentation there is the idea of kayak access and some ferry terminal or some terminal is planned as part of the project. fishing will be available. there will be greater a
